The National Strategy

The National Strategy presents a collaborative, cooperative four point plan to achieve the ambitious national goals of increasing seat belt and child safety seat use. Individuals must take responsibility for themselves and for their child passengers by making certain everyone in the vehicle is properly buckled up — every time and on every trip. It will, however, take the collective efforts of many people and many organizations to ensure that every person in America has the knowledge and tools to make the right choice and to take personal responsibility. The National Strategy has a role for everyone and builds on the considerable activities, funding, and resources already committed by many different organizations to this common cause.
